VITAMIN B-12 Injections

Vitamin B-12 in the form of Methylcobalamin is the most functional B-12 because it is bioavailable which means that the body does not need to convert it. This offers a huge advantage over other types of Vitamin B-12. Another type of B-12 is a synthetic form named Cyanocobalamin that contains cyanide and is not readily bioavailable. At GLOW Medical Aesthetics, we DO NOT inject or use Cyanocobalamin because it is synthetic and contains cyanide. Always be certain that your B-12 is Methylcobalamin.

It is nearly impossible to get enough Vitamin B-12 from the foods we eat.Because Vitamin B-12 injections are 100% absorbed, injectable B-12 is the preferred method of treatment. (Vitamin B-12 tablets absorption rate is very low). Vitamin B12 injections are viable for 7-10 days. Unfortunately, B12 deficiency may cause a variety of serious conditions.

Methylcobalamin (Vitamin B-12) is a naturally-occurring Vitamin B-12 that the body utilizes as it circulates through the blood system. Methylcobalamin in the form of B-12 is the ONLY from of B-12 that can independently cross the blood-brain barrier.  It has high stability and bioavailability that the body needs in order to:

Convert Fats: Vitamin B-12 helps convert fats and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein.

Supports and Increases Available Physical Energy: Every chemical reaction in the body expends energy, including converting vitamins into a form the body can use. Using B-12 in the form of methylcobalamin eliminates the need for certain extra chemical reactions, so physical energy is not wasted. Therefore, there is an increase in your available mitochondrial energy creation, the foundation for all human energy.

Support Nerve and Brain Health: Methylcobalamin is the only form of Vitamin B-12 that acts on the nervous system and works directly on brain cells to protect against damage. Researchers have found that weekly doses of methylcobalamin offer neurological therapeutic value.

Maintain a Positive Mood: Methylcobalamin is the only form of B-12 that can cross the blood-brain barrier without assistance or conversion. It stimulates serotonin creation, a neurotransmitter responsible for mood support. A lack of B12 may increase your risk for depression or anxiety.

Contribute to Red Blood Cell Formation: Your body relies on Vitamin B12 to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen to your organs. Lack of B12 deprives your red blood cells of oxygen. Without enough oxygen in your cells, you’ll feel tired no matter how long you sleep. Vitamin B-12 deficiency may commonly cause feelings of fatigue and lethargy.

Protect Cardiovascular Health: Converts Homocysteine: High homocysteine levels are undesirable and may indicate heart disease and risk for stroke. Homocysteine is a toxic amino acid and, in the blood, homocysteine causes arterial sclerosis, putting strain on the heart and vascular system. Methylcobalamin reduces the potential for homocysteine damage.
